May 4, 2022

The following paragraph has been removed under the subheading Exemption from refusal to process criteria:

Applicants who are issued these work permits are not eligible under the Home Child Care Provider and Home Support Worker pilots, as their work experience would not qualify as eligible “Canadian work experience” required under the 2 pilots. Consult these instructions for more details about qualifying work experience.
